Dear Parents or Guardians,
I am excited to inform you that your child has been assigned to read the novel, “The Giver,” by Lois Lowry for a few consecutive weeks.
“Coming to age” is one of the many themes that novel explores and that is to say your child will learn much about the main character, Jonas, who lives in a dystopian society.
The goal is to read the novel promptly. Each week, I will give a reading assignment for your child to read at home. Please assist your child in fulfilling these weekly assignments in order to keep up with the class. Every Friday, your child will complete an assessment based on our discussions about the novel.
On Monday, September 18, your child will be issued an individual copy of “The Giver” that must be brought to class everyday. For questions or concerns, you can notify me during my 4B planning that begins at 2:35 p.m.
